Audiobooks are one of my favorite ways to use time wisely. I can listen to a book while exercising, folding laundry, riding in the car, or just doing simple everyday tasks.
It also helps me tackle my to read pile so much faster.
I have been wanting to read the book I’d Rather Be Reading by Anne Bogel since it came out last fall. I have been working on my non-fiction books for every state challenge, and since I’d Rather Be Reading didn’t fit that challenge, it just never made it to the top of my TBR list.
When I realized though that I had several audio book credits on Audible and that Anne Bogel read her own book for the audio version, I knew that my next audiobook would be I’d Rather Be Reading.
I loved the audiobook version!
Sometimes audiobooks take me awhile to finish because I just fit them in when I have time. When it came to this book though, I ended up taking a walk just to fit in the time to finish the book. I guess you can say this audiobook helped motivate me get my exercising in.
I haven’t read the book version, so I can’t say for sure, but I am pretty sure I enjoyed this much more in audio than I would have in book form. I love books. The real, old fashioned, paper kind. So when I say I loved an audio book, you know it is good.
The style of I’d Rather Be Reading makes it perfect for an audiobook. It is a book of essays. So it is easy to listen to a chapter or two at a time.
The book is about reading, but since each chapter is a different essay they stand on their own. You can pick this one up and put it down. It is one of those books that you can stretch out and listen to as you have time.
If you love reading and books, you will be able to relate to I’d Rather Be Reading. In fact, you will probably find yourself thinking over and over again that she is describing you. This is a book about reading for people who love to read.
If you ever feel lonely in your love of books, this is the book for you. This book will remind you that the world is full of people that love to read.
Books about books are some of my favorite books. If you love books about books and books about reading as much as I do, then I’d Rather Be Reading is a must read!
Have you read it yet
Another book about books that we love is Book Girl. If you haven’t read it, it is also a great read.
